Asia Exchange Participant Reviews
A life experience
Submitted by Malin Fuchs - - | April 11, 2018
I have been studying two semesters at Udayana University in Bali! It was amazing in so many ways, everything from food, culture, lifestyle, surfing, people, beaches and sun! Asia exchange has been helpful during my whole stay and given all the information needed! I will recommend everyone to do a semester abroad and Bali is the perfect place to experience all of these wonderful things
A wonderful place to widen your horizons
Submitted by Niklas Melcher - University of Amsterdam | April 06, 2018
Study at HUFS and you never want to return. Academically, it is a nice place to be, teachers are skilled, classes are (to a big extent) fairly international. The campus is beautiful and the institution offers countless opportunities to engage socially, from festivals to sports events. But that is not the only thing, the city of Seoul offers tremendous opportunities to explore, grow and enjoy. Ranging from a unique nightlife and an extremely delicious cuisine to one of a kind social and entertainment activities, Seoul never disappoints you. And most of all: Koreans are curious, kind and heart-warming people. No matter, where you are from Korea will be very different to what you are used to, and, yes it will occasionally take time to get used to it. But studying at HUFS with AsiaExchange will equip you with a set of wonderful experiences that you don't want to miss. I would go back any time!
Shanghai university / Asia Exchange programme in Shanghai! Take the jump.
Submitted by Mathilda - - | April 01, 2018
My semestre at Shanghai University was an amazing experience which I would strongly recommend to anyone thinking about spending some time in China and build a network there. The content of the courses was great as you can pick some of the courses yourself, and all of them were aligned on my interest to learn more about Chinese business & entreprise. The Chinese classes were a lot of fun too!
Overall, because of the occasional complexity of setting up such an adventure by yourself (communications with the university, paperwork, accommodation...) I cannot emphasise enough on the HUGE help that Asia Exchange services brought me to ensure my arrival and stay went as good as possible. It is very reassuring you know you can always reach out for questions or help if necessary, specially when in a country with such a different culture and strong language barrier. If you are still hesitating, just take the jump! I will never forget this experience which was an eye opener to me on many levels, and is such an added value to my professional profile (and personal too!).
Thank you again!
Siam University 2017/2018
Submitted by Laurens - Technische Universität Darmstadt / Siam University | March 14, 2018
I studied in Thailand at the Siam University (Bangkok) for one year(2017/18) and it was a great time because the Siam University offers a good education and support, I also had a great time because I had the chance to understand its culture and travel in Thailand and neighbor countries. So, if you are interested in Asian countries, do not hesitate or just think about it – just go. Because it is wonderful here
Exchange semester in Kuala Lumpur
Submitted by Lasse Hurri - Karelia University of Applied Sciences | March 11, 2018
I've been studying almost 8 years and I finally got courage to go sturdy overseas. And damn it was the best choice and time of my life so far. Everything went quite smoothly and that was made sure by Asia Exchange. Everyone got a little trouble with the visa process but it got handled very well and if I understood correctly no one had problems the next semester with it.
This could've not been made any easier by Asia Exchange and they helped us out along the process the best they could. I got everything handled just going by their directions and I didn't forgot anything important home because of their good guide!
As I said the exchange experience was the best time of my life so far. I met incredible people (students, locals, everyone overall), ate the most varied food in many different Asian countries (as I got to travel quite much) and most importantly got better knowledge of my studying field. I always forget to mention something important when I'm listing these things but overall it was awesome experience and would recommend to it for everyone. It was an eye opener and made me realize how awesome traveling is and how you have to just take a one big leap to experience such a great trip.
If you are thinking of going and even alone (as I did), just do it! It feels scary at first but you meet a lot of new cool people on the way and they are in the same situation!
Had awesome time in Malaysia
Submitted by Assi - Karelia UAS | March 11, 2018
Studying in Malaysia was one of the best things in my studies and in my life. Without Asia Exchange it would have not been possible. If there were any questions or problems any part of the proces they were very helpful and got answers fast.
Kuala Lumpur was a great place to live and so much to see and do in Malaysia. Everyone in UPM were also very helpful and friendly. I did enjoy my time with all classmates I had there.

Amazing study abroad experience in Thailand

I am currently doing my second semester in Phuket at the Prince of Songkla University and I am more than grateful that Asia Exchange enabled me this great opportunity and experience, the first semester has been absolutely amazing!
The customer service Asia Exchange as well as the university provide is simply excellent.
I met so many awesome people during my time in Thailand and I am more than happy to be able to be here for another semester.
The decision that changed my life
Submitted by Guillermo Tamborrel - ITAM | December 04, 2017
When I first thought of going abroad I was considering "fancy" universities and cities like Hong Kong or Singapore... just to realize beside being ridiculously expensive, I would be living in another hectic busy city as Mexico City. My true dream of studying in southeast Asia was mostly for the opportunity of travelling and visiting cities I had always fantasized on getting to know, one of the was Bali. It was during a night of insomia and a bit of existential crisis when I first googled "study in Bali"... and there it was, AsiaExchange´s website... that night I didn't slept at all. It was possible, it could actually be done! After stuggling with my univesity, it was only with AsiaExchange's support that I managed to be the first mexican ever to study in Bali! There aren't enough words to describe how thankfull I'm with AsiaExchange for making my semester abroad possible, not only they took me there but also they arranged my whole semester over there. Studying in Bali definitely changed my life. Living in a place where people fantasize on visiting goes beyond and possible explanation. Got the opportunity to live the nature, meet amazing people (including my current german-girlfriend haha) who I'm sure I'll treasure them the rest of my life and becoming a better person. Bali not only is affordable, yet is mesmerizing! Bali was a life-changing experience, now more than ever I can proudly say "Saya seorang mahasiswa universitas udayana"! (hint: something I learned over there haha. google it ;) )
Studying in Lombok- a cultural exchange in paradise
Submitted by Xenia - Humboldt University | October 20, 2017
I am currently studying at the University of Mataram in Lombok and absolutely love it! As we are only 15 international students at UNRAM, it's really easy to get into contact with local students and learn about culture and local people's life. In general you can't find mass tourism in Lombok, which makes it even a better experience. Most of us stay in Senggigi, which is about 30 min to University. Some guys share a villa, other prefer to live alone in a small apartment. You can easily find a great and cheap accommodation, close to one of the beautiful beaches here;). The program offered by Asia Exchange gives you the opportunity not only to study management subjects but also subjects like "Tourism in Southeast Asia" or "Indonesian History and Culture". There is also a Bahasa class, which we all love, as the teachers are awesome! Some language skills also helped us a lot in our all day life's and of course the locals liked it as well. The Asia exchange staff gave us lots of informations before and during the exchange, regarding visa, health, transport, accommodation, university, application process etc.. Everytime time I had a question or a request, they replied within view hours or max. one day. All in all it is a great experience and I can highly recommend the program! Especially when you can skip winter in Europe;)
